Nov 29, 2023 | Appetizers & Snacks


Prep Time

Cooking Time

15 minutes
18-20 minutes


– 2 cups fresh spinach, stems removed and finely chopped
– 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
– 1 teaspoon baking powder
– ½ teaspoon baking soda
– ½ teaspoon salt
– ½ teaspoon black pepper
– 2 large eggs
– 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
– ½ cup Greek yogurt
– ½ cup olive oil
– 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh dill (optional, but highly recommended)
– 1 clove garlic, minced

Step-by-Step Instructions:

1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a muffin tin with paper liners or grease it lightly with cooking spray.

2. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and black pepper. Set aside.

3. In a separate large mixing bowl, gently beat the eggs until well combined. Add the crumbled feta cheese, Greek yogurt, olive oil, fresh dill (if using), and minced garlic. Stir until the mixture is smooth and well-mixed.

4. Fold in the finely chopped spinach into the wet mixture, ensuring it is evenly distributed.

5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the spinach mixture, stirring gently until just combined. Be careful not to overmix, as this could result in dense muffins.

6. Spoon the batter into each muffin cup, filling them approximately 2/3 full.

7. Bake the muffins for about 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. The tops should be golden brown.

8. Once baked, remove the muffins from the oven and let them cool in the tin for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

9. Serve these delightful muffins warm or at room temperature, and enjoy the incredible flavors that will transport you to Mediterranean shores.

Tips and Variations:

1. For an extra burst of flavor, consider adding a handful of chopped sun-dried tomatoes or olives to the batter.
2. Feeling adventurous? Experiment with different types of cheese like goat cheese or even blue cheese for an intense flavor profile.
3. These muffins make a perfect addition to brunch or as a savory snack on the go. Pair them with a simple green salad for a light and satisfying meal.

With every bite of these Spinach Feta Muffins, I am transported back to the bustling streets of Athens, where I first encountered the harmonious blend of vibrant spinach and tangy feta cheese. I hope this recipe has allowed you to embark on your own culinary adventure, infusing your kitchen with the essence of Greece. From my heart to yours, enjoy these savory muffins that nourish both body and soul. May they bring you joy and memories to cherish for years to come.
